With the initiative of the “European Platform for Digital Humanism,” Ars Electronica and its partners from research, industry and culture are participating in an urgent reassessment of our relationship to the technologies we create and how we use them. In the third chapter of the “User Manual for Digital Humanists” series, moderated by Veronika Liebl, Director of European Cooperation at Ars Electronica and Kristina Maurer, Head of European Projects Festival/Prix/Exhibitions at Ars Electronica, we are joined by producer Andrew Newman, who is working on the development of arts-based educational activities in secondary and higher education as well as informal learning environments within the framework of the EU projects Creative School, OSHub and STEAM Inc.

Deep Space LIVE: Constellations in the Light of Science – Pisces.
THU 27.5.2021 / 7 p.m.

At Deep Space LIVE on Thursday evening, astrophotographer Dietmar Hager invites you on a virtual journey to the constellation of Pisces. For astrophotographers and stargazers, this constellation holds several fascinating astronomical objects – such as so-called galaxy clusters like Messier 74. Another optical treat in the constellation of Pisces is the Polar Ring Galaxy, which is the result of a merger of two galaxies. Afterwards, we will explore other exciting regions of the universe.

Cooperative Aesthetics: Kaleidoscope / Gerhard Funk
SAT 29.5.2021 / 3:30 p.m.

Students of Time-Based and Interactive Media Art at the Linz University of Art and Design took advantage of the infrastructure of Deep Space 8K with its 16-by-9-meter wall and floor projections and laser tracking to develop various projects that they’re now presenting to the viewers of Ars Electronica Home Delivery under the motto Cooperative Aesthetics. In Gerhard Funk’s work Kaleidoscope, players use laser tracking to create fascinating kaleidoscopes in 16-by-9-meter format.
